The numbers would actually be relevant only for the last 2 years since FY21 hardly had any revenues being the first full year of operations. However, the company has picked up growth very fast as is evident from the sales doubling in one year. However, with just 2 years of data, traditional measures may not be too relevant. If you look at the EPS, latest year data is only relevant at ₹6.84 per share. At the IPO price of ₹92 per share, that is about 12-14 times the earnings. However, the net margins have hovered between 2% and 3% and is unlikely to grow substantially above that level. Hence, above average growth in profits may not happen in future, which limits the leverage it can get out of valuations.

For now, investors will have to take a risk on the fairly robust business model in the absence of historical data and the traditionally low margins in this particular segment of business. Net margins are unlikely to improve substantially from current levels. That would be the valuation roadblock that the company may come up against. However, it must be noted that this is more of a sectoral and market growth bet than a valuation bet at this point. Hence investors with a higher risk appetite and longer waiting period must only venture to invest in this IPO.
